Camp the boxers for 3 months if you want medals – Clottey tells Ghanaian authorities

first_imgFormer IBF welterweight champion, Joshua Clottey is prescribing an intensive three-month residential camping training regimen as the only way to ensure medal success for Ghana in boxing at international sporting events.According to Clottey, the system whereby boxers are selected and taken through a few weeks of training  ahead of major events will hardly yield any major results.”We need to send the boxers into residential camping for at least 3 months give them good  food and control all their social habits,” he told Joy Sports during visit to his Attoh Quarshie Gym in Achttp://admin.myjoyonline.com/articles/add/5/4cra.Clottey, who is a product of the amateur system also added that the boxers need to compete around the continent to sharpen their skill and conditioning for major events like the  Olympics, Commonwealth Games and All Africa Games.”They need a system where they will fight in several competitions in Ghana and on the African Continent. Once they have the experience it helps their technique and their conditioning levels for fights,” Clottey told Joy Sports. The national amateur boxing team of Ghana, the Black Bombers, have so far qualified only one boxer for the Rio Olympic Games and are looking forward to adding a few more in a final Olympic qualifier which comes off in Azerbaijan in about seven weeks.Prior to the last qualifier held in Cameroun, the Black Bombers had funding challenges which resulted in inadequate residential camping for the qualifier, which saw flyweight, Abdul Omar (pictured above) book his place at the Olympics.Boxing remains Ghana’s most successful sport at the Olympics with three of the four medals won so far coming from boxing. Boxers Ike Quartey Snr, Prince Amartey and Eddie Blay Snr, won boxing medals at different Olympic Games events to seal their places in Ghana’s sporting history. –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.

He will become a good 3-point shooter.” “It was very emotional,” Cavs coach Larry Drew said. “What he had done for the City of Cleveland, his stint there, it was emotional, and everybody was kind of wondering what kind of reception he’d get. And I was really happy to see the fans, they really embraced him being back there.”James was in the building early for the rematch for the Lakers’ pregame-shootaround, even though he’s missed 10 games with a strained groin. He could be seen pregame meeting with old friends with the Cavaliers, the tension dramatically ratcheted down since he wasn’t available to play.Larry Drew a fan of Ingram, KuzmaWhile the Cavaliers coach had a less stressful job without having to game plan for James, Drew likes some of the other talent on the team.He singled out Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma as the Lakers who have stepped up in James’ absence.“Watching them, it looks like Ingram has been more aggressive off the dribble,” Drew said. “Kuzma … I’ve always admired his game from afar. I think both guys have the ability to take their games to another level.” Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersOn that last line, Nance snickered, before hugging his old head coach and heading to see the renovated Lakers locker room.It was a friendly air to a rematch between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Lakers, less charged than the November bout when LeBron James’ return to his last franchise consumed all the oxygen.Related Articles With Nance (out with a right MCL sprain) and Jordan Clarkson as former Lakers, there was a lot of pregame chatting between old teammates, friends among coaches and trainers and even stadium staff. It was the first Lakers home game for both players since they were dealt to the Cavs last February. Even the day before, Kyle Kuzma had been anticipating taking on Clarkson in his return to Staples Center.“I bet Jordan is pretty excited,” he said. “I’m guessing he’s going to try to give it all he’s got. Especially coming back to L.A., playing us.”The first match-up, which the Lakers won 109-105, was marked by James’ comeback in Cleveland, when he received a much warmer welcome than his first return in 2010 with the Heat. Even though it went smoother, it was still emotionally taxing. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
